Thieves Steal Millions In Apple Goods On NYE

According to reports armed robbers stormed into a Paris Apple store and stole more than a million dollars worth of Apple goods on New Years Eve. The Guardian reported that up to 1 million Euros ($1.3 million) in goods were stolen at the store selling products such as Apple's iPhones and iPads behind the Paris Opera house.

The masked gunmen used the fact that police were deployed around the famed Champs-Elysees Avenue area where revelers traditionally gather on New Year's Eve to storm into the store around 9 p.m. Monday, 3 hours after closing. Christophe Crépin from the police union Unsa told reporters four masked and armed individuals forced their way into the shop and afterwards escaped in a van.

"They were well prepared. As the majority of police were busy watching the Champs Elysées [because of the New Year's Eve celebrations], the robbers took advantage of this opportunity," he said.
